Catastrophic work related injuries, resulting in long-term immobility are complex and serious medical conditions that seriously impact a person’s physical functionality and psychological health.
These injuries almost invariably result in very high, and on-going, medical costs. These can be significantly reduced by the use of the Freedom Bed™, a lateral rotation therapy bed system that provides a wide range of programmable settings, allowing the user to remain living at home without developing:
Pressure injuries (bed sores)
Cardiovascular complications such as embolism
Respiratory complications such as pneumonia
Urinary tract infections (kidney and bladder)
If left untreated, complications from long-term immobility and catastrophic injuries contribute to rapidly rising medical costs for the individual in addition to the added health risks. The Freedom Bed™ helps overcome these complications associated with immobility and helps mitigate rising medical costs while keeping the individual as comfortable as possible with family and caretakers at home.
The Freedom Bed™ is a computer-controlled, self-rotating bed designed specifically for long-term home care. This unique medical bed automatically turns its users to differing stable sleeping positions without the help of caregivers, family members, or healthcare professionals. The bed not only turns laterally, but features an intuitive air-powered head and leg raising system so users can be raised into a sitting position.
The Freedom Bed™ smoothly and quietly rotates its users from one side to the other, mimicking the natural nocturnal motion of the body, providing dramatically improved quality of sleep, and reduces many health risks associated with catastrophic injuries such as spinal cord injuries, traumatic head injuries, and other immobilizing conditions.
The lateral rotation therapy offered by the bed repositions the body and restores blood flow to compressed tissue to prevent pressure injuries such as bedsores. The Freedom Bed™ also boasts an impressive record of developing feelings of independence, a strong sense of self, and restoring integral quality of life for its users.
Long-term care options for those on worker's compensation are not what they once were. Modern medical advances and technologies like the Freedom Bed™ assist individuals to live fuller, healthier, and happier lives at home.
